Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains one fake Facebook profile, two best friends who secretly crave each other, and a dreaded sex talk with parents…boy crush in the room included. Pushing a relationship beyond the friend zone has never been so crazy…
Emma has been best friends with Eli since she moved to his neighborhood ten years ago. Tired of being cast in the role of the girl next door, Emma creates a fake Facebook profile in the hopes of starting an online friendship with Eli, which would hopefully lead to more. Like...way more. From friend request to In a Relationship--it all seemed so completely logical when she'd planned it.
Eli can't figure out what Emma is up to. He’s pretty sure she's the one behind the Facebook profile, but then again, why would she do something so drastic instead of just admitting she wants to be more than friends? And who the heck is this new guy he saw her with? Eli starts to think that just maybe...he missed his chance with the girl next door.
Two best friends, one outlandish ruse. Their status is about to become way more than It’s Complicated...
Super sweet YA romance with many funny and embarrassing (for Emma and Eli) moments. If you've ever gone to great lengths to get the attention of your male bestie, then you'll love this dual POV story. It'll give you butterflies. ...more
ARC kindly received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
I blew through this one. A quick and easy read.
A very interesting theory for a storyline. With so much of the world engrossed in social media these days, its a very relevant topic. The fact that Emma created an online profile... ...more
The Girlfriend Request was about a girl getting that guy that she had been in love with since she moved in next door, a typical girl meets boy story that focused on the everyday issues of this particular teenager. While it’s good to have a bang at the climax of the story, having the incredibly re... ...more

There's an air of familiarity to the story--the occasional bullying, feelings of insecurity, teens going about their problems the wrong way, etc.--but it did h... ...more
Sometimes I get those days wherein I couldn’t do anything productive. Having read Illuminae, I was stuck in a reading slump so while I was stuck in traffic on my way to Uni, I decided to read this book and I was really hooked. I finished it on the bus, yep while it was moving. Haha!
I simply adore... ...more
I'm a sucker for these friends turned lovers tropes. <3
Only thing that bugs me is that the girl has got curly hair. It's mentioned so many times, it's practically a plot point.
And who do they have on the cover?
A girl with straight hair.
4.98 stars out of 5. ;) ...more

The Girlfriend Request interested me because it was the typical girl next-door story with a little twist. Emma had been in love with Eli for as long as she could r... ...more
This was so much fun. Emma is adorable and Eli is to cute for words. The story is one that is told many times but not quite like this. Here Emma decides to pretend to be someone else on Facebook to talk to Eli and get him to date her.
They have been besties for so long that she is afraid of losing... ...more
I thought that this was a cute and quick read. I liked that it was an easy read and that the relationship between Emma and Eli was not too complicated. Made for a fun read. I also really liked how Emma's parents were involved in her life and were always there for her to talk to whenever she neede... ...more
♥ MY REVIEW: Why is it so hard to tell the truth?
They have been friends since Emma had move into their neighborhood eons ago, and some things change. Emma wanted Eli to be more than just her friend. But how can an ordinary girl snatch someone extraordinary as Eli? Well, she makes one of those cra... ...more
This was a cute read! Full review to come.
**Thanks so much to Entangled Teen for allowing me to read this book in exchange for an honest review!**
The Girlfriend Request follows Emma, who happens to have a HUGE crush on her best friend Eli, who also happens to be her next-door neig... ...more
A cute and sweet best-friends-to-BF/GF story (I hesitate to say "lovers" because thankfully, they don't go that far yet-these two are definitely not ready to take that step!) by a new-to-me author who I'll definitely be reading more from in the future.
I really enjoyed Emma and Eli together--they... ...more
THE GIRLFRIEND REQUEST by Jodie Andrefski was a super cute teen read. We start off with Emma and Eli who have been best friends since childhood. Emma, who has harbored a crush on Eli forever decides to take the cowards way out and create a fake Facebook profile to talk to Eli, in the hopes she ca... ...more
I received an ecopy ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. It is as though every rom com chick flick cliche was thrown into this book and yet it was still adorable and hilarious; I laughed a lot through this book. From the boy next door, to love triangles, to kissing in the rain, rose... ...more
Pretty neat story, I liked it a lot.
There is a lot of emotions rolling around. Emma is a weak character, she is being bullied at school, but she doesn't report it and obviously she isn't brave enough to tell her long life friend Eli, that she like him more than a just a friend, due to this there... ...more

I received an ARC from the publisher at Netgalley for an Honest Review.
I really enjoy many of the Entangled Teen Crush books. They have sweet stories and are kept moderately clean. There isn’t anything really vulgar or crude. You... ...more
This was a very cute story. Emma and Eli have been close friends for years, but Emma wants more. However, she is not sure how he feels and is to shy to tell him. She decides a little catfishing is the way to go, creating a Facebook profile that represents her in many ways, but with a fake photo a... ...more
THE GIRLFRIEND REQUEST is a story about a girl who can't manage to work up the courage to tell her best friend that she loves him. As everything goes wrong in her plan to tell him without actually telling him, a beautiful story about loving and forgiving is woven.
Andrefski is wonderful at creati... ...more
My expectations were definitely exceeded. I wasn't really expecting much from a desperate attempt to show the boy you like by starting to catfish him.
A short and light read. You are quick to get attached to the scheming Emma as she tries her damn hardest to show the boy she's known almost her who... ...more
I love the show catfish, so this was a fun book to read. The story was sweet, totally believable and fun. Emma and Eli made me crazy with the mixed signals and lack of communication, but that is also what makes the story interesting to read. Very enjoyable, and would love to read more by Jodie An... ...more
Emma had a serious crush on Eli. She met him when she moved across the street when she was six years old. Now she decided to send him a friend request from a fake profile to get his interest.
I loved all that Emma went through before she found true love. The same with Eli. The characters and plot... ...more
A cute and quick read that had me hooked from the beginning. Eli and Emma were both great characters and although I didn't agree with all the decisions that they made I really enjoyed reading this book. ...more
This book was such a sweet read. I felt the angst of being back in high school again and wanting a boy to notice me. The author captured the ups and downs of relationships perfectly. Highly recommend this book. ...more
